BetterShared's Father's Day Gift Guide

As Father's Day draws closer and closer, the "panic" may be starting to set in where you don't know what to gift that person who's particularly difficult to buy for. You may want to give that special person an art piece to add to their budding art collection, or perhaps you want to give the father figure in your life something to show them how much they mean to you.

Here are our suggestions for your Father's Day gifts this year. See Below BetterShared's Father's Day Gift Guide for 2021:

Ride Natty Ride

£69

 

Fans of photography, gift Ryan Eccleston's 'Ride Natty Ride' to your dad this Father's Day. This image depicts a Rasta man enjoying an afternoon stroll in the lush and green Portland, Jamaica; known for its legendary vegetation, this parish wins the title of being the greenest on the island. 

 

Iqhawe

£79

 

 

Is your dad your hero?

'Iqhawe' literally translates as 'hero' in Zulu.

Conceptualised by South Africa illustrator and graphic designer Tebogo Lethuba, this piece was inspired by Lethuba's own hero South African singer Sjava, whose music has healed and liberated many across the country. 

This piece is very much influenced by Afrofuturism which explores the intersection between traditional African aesthetics and the technology and culture of the 21st century. 

 

The Afronaut

£85

 

 

‘The Afronaut’ is one of a few pieces belonging to a series created by Mozambican visual artist Hugo Mendes. The piece largely inspired by Afrofuturism imagines Makonde heritage alive and present in outer space.

 

The Big Splashh!

£129

 With his Afro-Minimalist style, Abe Ogunlende's 'The Big Splashh!' would make a great gift for a dad, or perhaps a grandad who knows how to enjoy life!

One of the three pieces in Ogunlende's series 'The Sky is Always Blue' (2020), this piece reminds us of hope and all that is good in this life, reflected in the choice of colours and compositions. Despite the facts that clouds will always appear, they soon clear and behind them the sky is always blue.

Basquiat

£169

 

 Capturing the likeness of American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat known for his pivotal role in the Neo-expressionism movement, Franck Tawema's pixel art collage has been constructed using individually cut and hand-arranged cubic pieces.

Jimi

£169

 

 Any fans of Jimmy Hendrix?

Franck Tawema's pixel art collection reveals influences of cubism, African art and architecture. Each piece is signed and numbered with a certificate of authenticity.

 

BONBON SIFFLET(E)

£309

 

 BONBON SIFFLET(E) belongs to the second instalment of Neals Niat's "Mapanes Love", a sequence of artworks depicting the love stories of three couples whose relationships face the test of time.

This Benskineur, a name given to taxi drivers in Cameroon, is pretending to be a young executive in order to marry a girl who he believes comes from a wealthy family. Will it work out for them?

 

LE YOR/ KIWI

£309

 

Give Neals Niat's 'LE YOR/ KIWI' to the man that you treasure in your life. Typical of Niat's graphic art style combining monochrome and pastel colours, this piece is part of the first instalment of Niat's artistic project "Mapanes Love".
